The Beauty Products To Buy This Weekend As Picked By Our Beauty Team And Bloggers

14 March 2014 by


Caudalie Divine Legs, £26

All this warmer weather is great, until it means having to bear our winter-ravaged, pale skin. Fear not! This [a target="_blank" href="">clever oil[/a] works with all skin tones to give legs (and arms) a luminous, golden glow. Warm-weather essential? You bet.

Clinique Cheek Pops, £16.50 each

“Clinique's [a target="_blank" href="">Cheek Pops[/a] are the new season's must-haves and the prettiest looking blushers ever - buttery soft, very pigmented and perfect for all skin tones. I like to use my fingers to apply the blush which leaves a soft hue without looking cakey or powdery.”

Ciate Cuticle Tattoos, £10

Nail art was huge last year and now the craze has spread south to your cuticles. Nail experts Ciate have launched their amazing [a target="_blank" href="">Cuticle Tattoos[/a], so if you’re nail junkies like us, and you can’t get enough of a mani update, you’re in luck! Whether it’s pretty bows, edgy diamonds or a trio of stars that you decide to decorate your digits with there’s plenty of options, and with 10 sheets in a pack, this pack will last you ages.

Elemental Herbology Harmonising Cleanse Facial Cleansing Oil, £29

We’re a massive fan of cleansing oils, and now Elemental Herbology has given us their [a target="_blank" href="">Harmonising Cleanse[/a]. Perfect for the lazy-girls skincare regime (guilty) the anti-oxidant rich oil removes all traces of make-up and deeply cleanses, without stripping skin. Containing 100% plant oils, Vitamin C and E the super gentle oil is amazing at reducing redness and inflammation, as well as nourishing and hydrating the skin. A three-minute facial? Winner.

Hurraw Lip Balm, £4.50 each

We’ve fallen head over heels for these super-cute[a target="_blank" href=""> lip balms[/a]. Why? Not only are they totally natural, vegan, and made with fair trade ingredients but their moisturising formula is never too glossy, sticky or sweet. Plus, with fresh flavours like chai spice, grapefruit and green tea- these could just be the ultimate spring beauty update.

Madame La La Fake Tan, £36

With temperatures and hemlines rising, we’re back on the quest for the ultimate fake-tan. Our new favourite has to be the new kid on the block, [a target="_blank" href="">Madame La La[/a]. The DD tanner (yes, it’s jumped on the naming bandwagon) applies like a treat, the colour is spot on, and the smell? Not an issue. But it’s the super hydrating and moisturising properties helping to prolong your tan that really make this a must-have on your shelf. We love it.

Thierry Mugler Alien Eau Extraordinaire, £50

“I've always loved the distinctive fragrance of Alien, so I was really excited to hear that Thierry Mugler was releasing a [a target="_blank" href="">brand new scent[/a]. It's sensual yet fresh, a gorgeous floral fragrance.”

Chantecaille Save The Bees Palette, £74

The week started off positively balmy, and it’s got us totally in the mood to Spring clean our make-up. Chantecaille has released its all-new [a target="_blank" href="">SS14 palette[/a], perfect for eyes and cheeks. With warm coral blushes, delicate pale blue shadows and golden honey highlighters, this really is spring time in a palette. And a cut of the proceeds are donated to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust so you can do your bit to help protect and raise awareness for the plight of Britain’s Bees!

Shiffa Dubai Basil Mint & Black Pepper Body Wash, £25

"I've never considered spending £25 on a shower gel, but [a target="_blank" href="">Shiffa Dubai's basil, mint and black pepper body wash[/a] is well worth it. With one pump of the fragrant formula you feel instantly awake. It's aloe vera repairs skin, whilst the rosemary relaxes muscles and tones. The thing I love about this is that it's all natural and feels it. I'd spend £25 for the smell alone but thankfully it works wonders."
